End subsidised food and alcohol in Parliament and the Lords
Please petition the house and campaign for an end to subsidised food and alcohol for MP's and Lords. Raise the subject at Prime Ministers questions or from the floor of the House of Commons.
Why is this important?
It now costs the British tax payer more than £6 million pounds per annum to supply public servants with subsidised food and alcohol. Given the recent MP salary increase to £74000 (before expenses) it's not unreasonable to expect that they pay for subsistence in the same way the majority of other workers do. The average wage in the UK is £26000 - £74000 pa from the public purse is quite enough. Equality with other workers!
